Ages 6th - 8th Grade

Beginning in February the Confirmation students began using the mid-week Lenten theme material “Traveling the Way of Love: Practices for a Jesus centered life.” We will continue to explore the seven spiritual practices during the months of March and April as we finish off the year. The material will include worship moments with scripture, prayer, music and video stories that flesh out these seven spiritual practices. The hope is that as the confirmation students, several of our relational groups and the general congregation puts some efforts into these practices that there will be opportunity for conversation within the confirmation families that would include the whole family. All confirmation large and small group gatherings will remain virtual until further notice. Please contact Pastor Bob with any questions at

Update: Since the January confirmation retreat was canceled, three of the 10 available large group sessions were scheduled as part of the retreat. If you were planning to use these toward the yearly confirmation expectation of seven large group sessions, here are several options to replace them:

· Attend and complete a reflection for an additional scheduled elective.

· Plan and complete a self-directed elective.

· Participate in and reflect on a conversation with a friend or family member about one of the spiritual practices from the Love is the Way series.
